I'm stunned on a daily basis in these threads by the level of hypocrisy. I couldn't believe my eyes as someone applauded Trump for pardoning Blagojevich because they think he will turn his life around. Everyone is on a crusade to weed out corruption in Ukraine, yet this guy was caught red-handed on tape trying to literally auction off a senate seat but now we're all good with it. As long as Trump says it's okay, it's a go for you guys.

You will find I stand solid in the far liberal camp when it comes to prison sentences. Wasn't Blog in jail for something like 8 years? I feel that is more than enough.

I think we put people in jail for WWWAAAAYY longer than we should be, I am against the death penalty and I don't think anyone caught doing drugs, vice crime, or many other crimes should be in prison at all.

I don't think we should have been weeding out corruption in Ukraine either - it's none of our damn business and we surely shouldn't be giving them money to fight against Russia.

Prison sentences being excessive I absolutely agree with, I also think many of the laws now are more of a method of getting more tax revenue then to instill real safety and order in society

I disagree on the Death Sentence, that needs to be in place for unredeemable individuals who taken a person life.

We will agree to disagree on the death penalty. Humans do not hold the rights of God and we have no more right to take the life of a murder than we do an unborn child.

These are my beliefs. I respect yours, I just don't agree. Which is okay.

Life isn't cheap, it the most valuable thing someone has and it simple an even bargin someone plan, cruelly took someone life away they should have to pay the same price and not be rewarded with state benefits for the remaider of his life.

Unborn children are innocent being a murder isn't so I don't see any confliction between being pro life and pro capital punishment which I am.

But as you said I completely disagree but I still respect your position on it regardless.

Bloomberg just got scalped by a fake Indian. I wonder if he can still get the 400 million back that he spent this month.

What an absolute clown show. Didn't watch all of it, just the highlights. The closing statements were terrible by all the candidates. Biden is like that old, weird uncle that you laugh at Thanksgiving. Man, this is all they have to offer America? Won't be much drama come Nov.

Here is a one-photo summation of the evening.

So basically the DNC has been unable to put forth a viable moderate candidate. Biden flopped and I wouldn't be surprised if Bloomberg does too after his performance tonight. He seemed like an effective leader as Mayor but his ability to debate is poor given how the political climate's change in recent years. So all that leaves is Buttigeg?

Then you have the radicals crazy Bernie and Pocahontas. I just find it very hard to see independents and generally educated working people to support his nonsense platform. There's generally liberal people I know who say he's too far left. I know it's anecdotal, but I think it's a fair observation.

The state of the democratic party:



Turn out the lights and remember that the blame is on the dnc and the dnc only. All this time and this is what they bring? Absolutely brutal.

Prediction:
Brokered convention with Bernie Bros getting off their leashes and physically attacking people. I hope I'm wrong about violence but...

Last night was the first debate I watched and... woof. I only watched the first 1:15 or so but Bloomberg looked like the Hindenburg out there and my wife said of Warren "Jesus, does she ever come up for air???" She and Bernie tried to rule the room but they're unelectable so who cares.

Biden is sunk and looks so old he should be printed on money.

The only two I thought looked remotely sensible are Klobuchar and Mayor Pete.
